Griffin acquired the No. 2, No. 3 and No. 5 players on the list below directly in the trade with the Lakers, then moved the No. 4 pick he acquired to deal for the No. 4, No. 6 and No. 8 players below – all of whom I project to turn into good role players or even starters. There is a long way to go, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Pelicans won an NBA title between 2023 and 2030, and that is in large part due to the work Griffin did after being hired last year.

It’s pretty incredible the job that Griffin did to completely rebuild this roster in one offseason.

Just wait till we get a few more drafts under our belt.

And he did all that with basically only one suitor for AD. Imagine what he would have gotten if AD wasn't gay for Lebron.

That’s still too low for Ingram, imo.

I agree. Too low for Ball as well IMO (by a couple spots).

I’d have Ingram no lower than fourth.

I’d have to see the rest of the list for Ball.

Brandon Ingram is a better player than Ben Simmons and Trae Young.
